94.9 WDKB and T-Mobile are partnering to recognize our Hometown Heroes! Each week, we will highlight First-Responders, Nurses, Teachers, Good Samaritans, and more for all they do in the places they live and work in DeKalb County & Northern Illinois. Our Hometown Hero this week is:

Debra Boughton

Northern Illinois University Athletics Chief of Staff Debra Boughton is an ATHENA Award Winner by the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce in recognition of her dedication to serving the community and empowering other women leaders. Deb has also worked tirelessly to build a healthy women’s networking group which she is a co founder of called Gather.  Deb’s commitment to the university and her continued drive to empower women of DeKalb county is truly inspiring!

 


Nominate someone that you believe is helping to make DeKalb County a better place and they could be featured as our next Hometown Hero!
